50 Years of The Australian Ballet from Australia Post

Stamp Name:50 Years of The Australian Ballet
In 2012, The Australian Ballet marks 50 years in an illustrious history, and Australia Post is celebrating with the release of two domestic base-rate (60c) stamps. A range of collectables is also available to mark this remarkable milestone in Australia's cultural life.
Australia's premier ballet company is notable for its classical and contemporary dance repertoire, and also for the versatility, technical skill and warmth its dancers bring to performances. The company's full-time ensemble of dancers attracts both audience and critical acclaim - accolades it has enjoyed throughout its history - performing outstanding works created by both Australian and international choreographers.
The stamps and products were designed by Jo Muré from the Australia Post Design Studio, and feature the photographs of Georges Antoni.
The stamp issue features a limited-edition (15,000) postal and numismatic cover (PNC), which presents a 50 cent uncirculated, cupro-nickel coin designed by Aaron Baggio for the Royal Australian Mint.
